    Hi all, new here and first time posting.

    i am a single mother of a 9 year old boy.

    i have had a meeting at work today to basically say that my work is not up to scratch (I’ve known this for a while). We have now reached the end of the line and I either need to resign or will be given my notice.

    in terms of universal credit, does anyone know which is the best option. Will I be able to claim either way?

    I would not resign as you will definitely be sanctioned, if your employer gives you notice you could argue that you were unfairly dismissed, do not admit under any circumstances that you knew that your work wasn’t up to scratch others again you’ll be sanctioned.

    Hi Alijane

    Sorry to hear that.  I recommend that you contact our Single Parent Helpline.  They will be open today between 5 & 7 then Thursday 10 – 4 and Friday 10 – 4.  They should be able to help you to explore your options.  The number is 0808 802 0925.

    I wish you the best, Justine

    Its not over yet…

    Do not resign, you will be sanctioned and you wont get any help for up to 5 months.

    Try not to claim UC I personally think its a shambles.

    Make notes of what you feel you have brought or can bring to the company. If they offer you constructive criticism then make suggestions. Don’t just be a ‘yes’ girl

    Cling on to this job for as long as you can 😀
